Pimp My Barrow 2012 raises nearly £9,000

Pimp My Barrow has had another successful year with the event raising a total of £8,783.43 for charity.

Over 1,500 students took part in the race to raise money for the cancer charity The Big C, which works to ensure Norfolk residents have access to the best possible care.

Originally devised and run on a voluntary basis by former UEA students Paul Wheeler and Tom Tapper in 2007, this year was the first time the event was coordinated by the UEA Raising and Giving (RAG) society in conjunction with the Union of UEA students.

Popularity of the event has continued to grow over the past six years, in which UEA students have raised over £25,000 for the charity.

    Is this author 14 years old with absolutely zero knowledge on music? Has to be. Two out of three songs are irrelevant. Both by shitty bands. Who paid for this?…

    Should we mourn GCSE poetry?
    Wonderful article! Very insightful and brilliantly communicated. I wasn't aware of this issue before, but this article has really brought it to light for me. Thank you very much!
